't specified the spending cuts. and governor romney's numbers don't work out either. in you've got both implying that my plan is sufficient, when in fact neither is sufficient. and that's the problem. whmy they translate that into governance, if they just do exactly what they promised they're going do, we are in a real crisis. and lo term, our country's got serious and unresolved problems. >> the voter out there only has a choice, therefore, between two insufficient possibilities.d >> but they do know that governor romney will cut more and obama will tax more. that's a certain inference. >> on your point, i was surprised that when paul ryan se said what he did to joe biden tha you know, "we can work ygether." and when romney runs, romney has a new ad out saying he can work better with congress than obama has, that somebody didn't point out that this is an obstructionist republican majority in the house. >> i think that's because obama is in a trap. he has painted himself into a corner, which makes him vulnerable to the charge, which has been heard increasingly ofte that you don't know w

. in the first debate, we had kind of an ironic moment in which governor romney was both confirming that he would not put new revenue on the table and saying that he was going to be bipartisan and get a solution. you can't sit down with the democrats and say, "i'm going to be bipartisan," and not offer anything. what the republicans have to offer is revenue. and what the democrats have to offer is spending cuts. and in that grand bargain which fell apart because neither could appease their own base effectively, they had both cuts and revenue on the table. that's where we're going to have to go for a solution. my worry is the country doesn't know that's what's going to happen. >> kathleen, how would your experience differ if you had watched on nbc, fox, pbs, cnn? did it make a difference which network you were watching? >> yes, the networks that held much of the debate in split screen invited you to see the debate through the reaction of the candidate who wasn't speaking. >> and you think that's significant? >> i think it's significant because it minimizes the likelihood that you're hearing what's

the coast of canada and is effecting hawaii. we're getting slammed on both sides of our country. >>> in america's election headquarters, back to politics. there's only nine days before election day. while many polls show president obama and romney running neck-and-neck, there are signs that the momentum may be shifting. it could have something to do with how americans view the candidates. look at this daily tracking poll showing the president's approval rating plunging. losing 7 points in a few days. quite a jump. david hawkins from cq roll call daily briefing joins us. >> good morning. >> seven points. that's a big difference, more than we've seen in a while. how much weight do you place in the poll? >> it happened this spring. to be honest i'm skeptical of this poll. gallup, as you may know, seems to have been tracking a little bit more negative towards the president and positive towards romney than all the other polls. it is also what -- it's interesting that there doesn't seem to be a reason why, in that one week, which started the morning of the debates and goes until frida
heard again from the campaigns, jim mess siena and david axelrod, e-mails from the romney campaign, both sides accusing each other of bluffing by -- >> on the state of the race. >> on the state of the race, the ground game, who has the best get out the vote. $2 million by restore our future the super pac for romney into pennsylvania. this is more than -- this is more than a bluff. this sounds real, $2 million is real money. >> here's what's going on here, andrea, i think we have very real evidence of this. is in the nine battleground states, the ability of either candidate to move the numbers has been nearly impossible when either one of them has had some momentum, it's maybe moved their number a point or two, but -- and moved the other guy's number down a point or two but not much. we are seeing almost all of the battlegrounds at some form of a standstill, maybe moving half a point here, half a point there. where you see evidence of romney's uptick in the national polls playing out in the states or in the nonbattleground states, the ones that have been left off, pennsylvania is a classi
with the biggest whopper of this campaign. i mean we've seen a lot of big lies coming from the romney campaign. i mean on a lot of different topics right? particularly mitt romney trying to have it both ways or three ways on almost every issue. you never know where he really stands on any issue. the biggest lie of all is this lie in the last couple of days, mitt romney is trying to sell the people of ohio -- it doesn't look like they're buying it. the latest poll shows president obama up five still in ohio. but we know what's going on, right? no doubt about it. president obama is winning ohio. largely because he saved the auto industry and so many -- tens of thousands of jobs in ohio depend on the auto industry. so many families from the auxiliary businesses. in fact, the unemployment rate in ohio is lower than it is nationwide because the auto industry is back. thanks to president obama. g.m. is back making better cars than ever before. chrysler reported an 80% increase in their number in the third quarter of this
to the obama presidency, and now that he and romney have come together in both the national and these tight swing state polls you see no lift at all in the obama camp pain, -- campaign. >> here's the argue. they make. he is still ahead in ohio and wisconsin, still ahead in what they call their fire wall. and even if you give romney all the swing states that they think they're going to win -- virginia, north carolina, florida -- that still only gets him to 248. throw the colorado, 257 electoral votes, needs 2 70 to win. >> couple things about the firewall. you have to question, is obama really ahead in ohio when everyone seems to acknowledge romney's big advantage among independents? this is true of a bunch of swing states. there's a question about who is really ahead. but the other issue is, this is a well-known incumbent late in the race. he is probably persuaded most of the people he is going persuade and his campaign speeches are telling you that. it's a fiercely partisan ideological message he is driving. he is not talking to independents. >> let's get a clip of that. we want to give yo
. it is the chance at being heard across mitt romney land. >> four more days. >> it is time. >> both sides are counting the days between now and tuesday. barack obama was greeted with chants of "four more years." he reminded the crowd. >> in four days, you have a choice to make. it is not between two party is orwo candidates. it is a choice between two different visions for america. >> the obama campaign says unemployment went up because more people are re-entering the job market, newly optimistic about jobs being created. >> the american auto industry is back on top. home values are on the rise. >> but mitt romney was quick to insist not enough new jobs are being created to energize the still is the candidate who knows how. >> i will have a lot of people offering advice, and i know a lot about it myself to begin with. >> virginia remains one of the most coveted prizes to win on tuesday. barack obama has two rallies here tomorrow. on monday, the final day of campaigning, mitt romney will spend his day in lynchburg and head to a rally -- at george mason university. >> thanks, rebecca. resid
